Dayton Wood Carving Show

Thought I would share a couple of photos from the Dayton wood carving show. The first photo was judged best of show. This is a life sized bust, carved of wood. Even the lace around the neck.

I didn't see any ribbon on this carving, but it sure is an amazing carving. The Dayton show is one of the largest and best in the country. I spent Saturday and Sunday at the show.

It truely amazes me what can be carved with wood. Such tiny and intricate details is stunning! I love to see the photos you post :-)

I love the Santa, all the birds and deer and fruit. That one should have gotten a ribbon, he's great.

Granny is stunning but when you get my age, you don't like looking at your own image! :-)

I agree about the Santa carving, such great detail. And the blue ribbon winner is a WOW too. I think they are pretty amazing. I'm going to look and see if they have wood craving shows in my area, I enjoy seeing these pieces. Thanks for sharing. I'm trying to catch up on reading my blogs today, I've been quite sick the last few days.
